The Viking Ship Olympic Arena
- for the big moments!
The Viking Ship is a modern multi-purpose hall with an interesting architecture. The form is based on the shape of the Viking ships, a functional and beautiful shape that is as appealing today as it was a thousand years ago. It was built for the Winter Olympics in 1994, and the Viking Ship is Norway's national arena for skating.
Diversity of events
The everday life in The Viking Ship includes more than world records and sports audience. We annually host both small and large trade shows, corporate events, exhibitions, banquets and concerts. This is a venue for all functions.
